According to the ACCC, the conductive parts of the enclosure may not be effectively earthed, as the earth cable supplied in the meter boxes was not manufactured to specifications and is not compliant to standards. This defect could result in a potential electric shock if a live wire were to come into contact with these enclosures.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Electric Meter Boxes, please do not use them. Instead, kindly contact Clipsal on 1300 369 233 for further instructions.

Always use appropriate personal protective equipment (“PPE”) when working with electrical fixtures and equipment, including gloves and protective eye ware. Ensure all circuits are turned off at the panel before working with any electrical appliance or lighting fixture.
